I'm facinated by crane's as well.

They are building a bridge here in town across the mighty ohio river. A dozen cranes working in tandem. Out on barges in the middle of the river. I could sit and watch for ever.

I was in chicago a month ago and they where building a hirise across the street from our hotel. I'd sit and watch from my window a few hours a day.

Oh, Mommy, me want!




This is funny. I thought I was the only one obsessed with cranes. I fully intended to be a crane operator when I grew up. Sadly, (or fortunately) there is next to zero crane work around here. I did spend a lot of time running a small one, more like a boom truck. That was good times.

I think in the end, I would have been bored if all I did was operate day in and day out. I was on a big underground job, and did nothing but run a hoe for months, and it actually got boring. I finally asked to get off the machine and run water mains in the ditch! :laughing:

What is that, Bruno?

I can't seem to find anything like it. I searched for "towable tower crane" and the like, but nothing similar shows up.
